ACPICA: fixup after acpi_get_object_info() change

Commit 15b8dd53

 changed info->hardware_id from a static array to
a pointer.  If hardware_id is non-NULL, it points to a NULL-terminated
string, so we don't need to terminate it explicitly.  However, it may
be NULL; in that case, we *can't* add a NULL terminator.

This causes a NULL pointer dereference oops for devices without _HID.
